Beaver Section News
We met down at Turn Moss Car Park. Both nights were fine and dry though the Monday Night was the better night. From there the Beavers left in their Lodges on their bikes with at least a Leader and a "Tail End Charlie" to sweep up any stragglers. From that area there are several paths and tracks to follow between Hawthorn Lane/Road and the Mersey. After a couple of circuits it was back to the car park. All that is needed now is for parents to verify that their child can pump up a tyre, fit their safety helmet and understand how to ride safely. Once I have received that confirmation then the Cyclist Activity Badge is theirs.
Tonight the Monday Colony continued the tradition of planting bulbs. Some were planted in the grassed area between The Ranche and the Long Barn other were planted in pots to take home and watch develop.

Games Mon 3rd Sept

We started the new Scouting year as usual with a games night.The game illustrated is "Triangular Tug of War" with a Beaver at each end of the triangle trying to grab a cone behind them whilst the other two Beavers are trying to grab theirs. Not all the schools have started back, particularly on the Monday, so not all the Beavers attended. I hope that by this coming week we will be back to the usual level of attendance. The plan for next week is to continue with out programme of planting bulbs though sometimes I feel we are just feeding the squirrels.

9th & 11th JULY 2018

This week we were working towards the Pets at Home badge. Donna very kindly came in and spoke to the children about how to care for animals. They then had to complete some questions and draw a picture of their pet. To complete this badge the Beavers have to look after an animal for 6 weeks and make a journal of the things they have to do. Many thanks to Donna for her help.
